Permits have been filed for two eight-story mixed-use buildings at 376 and 378 Flushing Avenue in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The site is right on the border with Williamsburg. The Flushing Avenue subway station, serviced by the G train, is nine blocks away. Manhattan-based Riverside Developers USA is behind the applications.
The newest Bjarke Ingels Group-designed project has now partially topped out. The taller 36-story component of the XI, at 76 Eleventh Avenue in Chelsea, has reached this milestone when just seven months ago, it was merely two stories high. With only a few months in between YIMBY’s visits, the enormous scale of the new building is quite shocking, as it rose incredibly quickly. The theatric nature of the twisting concrete sculpture certainly catches the attention of visitors from the High Line park, where many tourists are already snapping photographs. HFZ Capital Group is responsible for the development.
Permits have been pre-filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 14 Clinton Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The site is right by the major East Houston commercial thoroughfare, and seven blocks away from the Essex Street subway station, serviced by the F, J, M, and Z trains. Andres Hogg of Hogg Holdings is listed as responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for an environmentally-oriented nine-story mixed-use development at 50 Pennsylvania Avenue, in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn. The site is two blocks away from the Alabama Avenue subway station, serviced by the J and Z trains. The Liberty Avenue subway station is also two blocks away, serviced by the C train. Pennrose is listed as behind the applications.
In exciting news for Sunset Park, plans for 6208 8th Avenue are now pushing closer to reality. A major proposal for the former railroad site in Brooklyn would create over one million square feet of mixed-use development. The structures would include commercial, residential, and community facility space. The site is next door to the 8th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N trains. Since YIMBY last checked in on progress, the design has not changed, but new information has now been released providing specific details for the proposal.
